5 Ways you can Reuse our Bridal Lehenga post your wedding!
Your bridal outfit is something you will cherish forever, isn’t it? But cherishing it doesn’t mean that it can’t be worn ever beyond the first Diwali or Karva Chauth! A garment that has been chosen after much research shouldn’t be stored in the back of your closet in a big box never to be worn again.
Why not recreate, reinvent and reuse your wedding lehenga for any other function? And on this thought, we bring you a list of ways in which you can wear your lehenga again!
1. Mix and match

An interesting way to reuse your lehenga would be to create an altogether new look by mixing and matching – you could use a new dupatta or try on a contrasting blouse. Get a long peplum top, forgoing the dupatta completely.
A complete makeover would be to turn your heavy lehenga into a floor-length Anarkali!
2. Get rid of the cancan

One thing that keeps the brides from wearing their bridal lehenga is its cancan and added frills which make the lehenga heavier than usual. So, get the cancan removed and you can dress up casually.
P.S. don’t forget to alter the length of your lehenga according to your needs.
3. Put your statement dupatta to work
Bridal dupattas are usually heavily embellished and embroidered. You can reuse your statement dupatta with an Anarkali suit, salwar kameez or a Patiala suit. All you need is your beautiful dupatta draped smartly to brighten up your look!
4. Pair it with long slit jackets

Team your lehenga with a long jacket to get a bold showstopper’s look.
Tip: Make sure your jacket has some embellishment or embroidery if your lehenga is plain or get a simple jacket for a lehenga with heavy work.
5. Wear your lehenga with a kurta or peplum top
